UTILIZATION

Rarely do I get to play on a guitar that is this fun to play on! This guitar JAMS! I'm usually a fan of more features - more pickups, tone control...I like to have some variety in my axes, just in case I fall in love with them and want to play them in any setting. This Christian Olde Wolbers Signature 7 string guitar is a one trick pony. But what a satisfying trick - the B string could chug and riff out with the best of them. The neck feels fantastic - it is sleek and incredibly fast, and the fretwork was out of this world. Jackson has long been known for their nice necks, and this is no exception.

SOUNDS

This guitar gets one sound. One pickup, one volume knob. Usually I'd be marking down for lack of versatility, but this axe is not designed for that. It has one single purpose - down-tuned riff-metal, and for that, it is perfect. Therefore, I'm giving this category a 10.

OVERALL OPINION

This is quite a ride. With this guitar, the severe lack of features IS a feature. It speaks volumes in its beautiful simplicity, and for that, I highly recommend it. For anyone that dislikes messing with knobs, and switches, and more wiring, and extra stuff - this guitar is it. It's black - black is the absence of light in nature. On this guitar, it could also represent the absence of extra nonsense as well.

Hatsubai's review"7 string version of the DK sig"

Jackson Christian Olde Wolbers DK7
This is the seven string version of the six string guitar he uses. It's almost exactly the same, only this has an EMG 707 and has a solid black paint job. The guitar has the following specs:

Mahogany body with a carved top
Mahogany neck-thru construction neck
Ebony fretboard with 24 jumbo frets
String-thru-body bridge
EMG 707 pickup
One volume knob
Solid black paintjob

UTILIZATION

This is very similar to his six string in that it's a very no frills guitar. You have the bare necessities needed to make a high gain sound. I found this one to be put together better than the six string version at the shop for whatever reason. It didn't have the nut issues that the other one had, and it didn't have the sharp edges. This could simply be due to it having more stable wood than the other or just be a fluke. I'm not exactly sure. The bridge on this is pretty nice for overall resonance transfer, but I was never a fan of the angle that these bridges create. The same goes for pretty much every TOM style bridge out there. I've been a floyd player for almost all my life, so I prefer a straighter style string angle.

SOUNDS

The guitar is a bit limiting, and that's its biggest killer for me. It's either high gain or nothing. The EMG 707 works great for what it sets out to do. It gives you this super thick and fat sounding low B that sounds super crushing. It's great for fast riffing, and it stays tight under extreme gain. That's one of the beauties of EMG pickups. However, the clean tones were really bad. I never liked EMG clean tones. They always sound very sterile and lack that nice bloom that normal pickups have. The fact that it had no neck pickup was also a big deal breaker for me as I love neck pickups for lead tones.

OVERALL OPINION

The guitar is great for those wanting a nice, solid one humbucker seven string guitar. However, the lack of a neck pickup was just too much of a deal breaker for me to consider buying this guitar. If you never use the neck pickup and want a seven string guitar, this could be worth checking out.

Jackson Christian Olde Wolbers DK7
Hello,
7-string guitar body and neck screws mahogany ebony factory in Japan, 24 frets with a single micro emg 707, a single volume knob,
through-string, IF NO setting on the volume
The handle is reversed, large enough (since c is a 7-string)

UTILIZATION

The neck is quite flat trs enjoyable, no varnish glue, the ACCS is good for acute
The ergonomics are well balanced and good enough Legre
the sound is good punchy trs emg active forces the 707 works really well I would say that it has more potatoes than the emg 81 that I have on another guitar

SOUNDS

The sound is really heavy and punchy j I changed the original drawing of which I found somewhat flexible, but c is a matter of taste and games
The sustain is really good (thanks to the through-string) the types of sounds are not many SINCE THERE that one microphone but we do ask him any more, it is made for big sound

OVERALL OPINION

I have the last two weeks and am really happy with my purchase
What I like particularly is the fact that c it is pure vraimen no marks on the handle of a single microphone, a button
value for the price is good, an average of 800 euro (500 euro more for color camouflage ....) I do it again the same purchase in the category of 7-string guitar
